Donald Trump has had one heck of a week, that’s for certain.
The Commander in Chief not only issued a fiery and triumphant State of The Union address, but also skated through the Senate impeachment trial with a swift and exonerating acquittal. While this result was fully expected in the Republican-controlled Senate, the moment was still cause for celebration for the President and his team.
In a rousing statement on Thursday, Trump laid out his congratulatory message as only he could.
“Today is the day to celebrate these great warriors, right?” Trump said. “These are great warriors. They really fought hard for us.”
Spotted at the event were former Sen. Rick Santorum, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Matt Gaetz (R-CA), Mark Meadows (R-NC), Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Louis Gohmert (R-TX) House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Mike Braun (R-IN), Mike Lee (R-UT), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Trump campaign surrogates Matt and Mercedes Schlapp, and conservative activists David Bossie and Brent Bozell.
“We’ve all been through a lot together,” said Trump thanking his supporters who gave him a standing ovation as he entered the room.
“We went through hell, unfairly,” Trump said, repeating that he did “nothing wrong” to deserve impeachment.
Trump’s legal team was also present and got a standing ovation. “Great job,” he told them.
Trump then quipped that the Washington Post headlines regarding his acquittal were likely the most favorable headlines he has ever received from the left-leaning newspaper.
